Board of Directors

Thanks to the Board's advocacy, support and guidance, our chapter continues to grow, succeed and strive to reach every eligible child. Together, we constantly assess our own performance to ensure we meet our goals and always do our best to bring hope, strength and joy to all eligible children in LA.

"Our volunteer board members are drawn to Make-A-Wish because of their heartfelt desire to positively impact our community. Many have had their own first-hand experience seeing the power of a wish."

-Suzanne Kolb, Board Chair
